  1. I woke up this morning asking myself, Why is this horrid Barry Manilow song stuck in my head? And then it hit me: it's Clive's birthday!!!


    Long may you run (hike, cycle, excavate, collect, travel), olde friend. :bhyper: Oh, and long may you do jumping jacks, too.




  2. I've been researching the Netherlands coins minted in the U.S. during the war and wondered what the acorn privy mark signifies. The answer, according to Jacques Schulman: the Handels-Secretaris (???) of the Dutch Embassy in Washington, DC was related to the Badhill-Thornhill family, whose coat of arms includes acorns. Not the most inspiring explanation, but it's the only one I've found.

  3. Sources:

    "Geld van het Koninkrijk", H. Jacobi and B. van Beek

    Akdeveli collection on OmniCoin

    Geld van het Koninkrijk is one of the books you helped me buy from a seller in the Netherlands back in 2007, T3. :friends: I refer to it often, but it's much easier when you do the translating. Thanks for posting this.
